Good morning!

Hehe... yesterday was so much fun, and gave a few VERY different experiences.

We had our Christmas Dinner with the boss and the employees at our gym where I work part time. The gym opened one year ago, and it has grown enormously!

To celebrate, boss man went all out!

We went to a VERY face restaurant. We're talking $200 menu kind of expensive.

Never have I had food tasting this good and fulfilling before, and never have I seen this little on the plate. :) I'm glad I wasn't the one paying.

It was a great experience though. The food was damn near perfect. The flavors were amazing, the consistencies. I could get used to it, that's for sure.

Trouble is, of course, I'd hit starvation mode within the week.

Take a look at these pictures I took:


Starter dish. Half a potato for each. It's hollowed out, with a little mayo inside. The white thing is the rest of the potato. Also, we get ONE potato chip with an avocado/mayo dip here. :) Mind you, the dish here is for five people...


This is the first of the three courses. It's oysters and lobster tail, with a chocolate sauce (kind of like the Mexican mole, if you will...).


Main course was port. The meat from the jaw, a slice of tenderloin and one more, which I forgot what was.


"Christmas treats". This is the dessert - very chocolaty, ice cream-like dish.

What was very impressive with these dishes was that every bite had a different flavor. Every bite was an experience. Every bite was satisfying.

Sure, I didn't get more than maybe 120 grams of food total, but I was 100% satisfied. Then again, I didn't pay the bill. :)

...

It was freaky getting on the scale this morning. I had entirely too much red wine, and slept all morning, much longer than I usually do.

How often do you guys go to a company party with free food and come home all satisfied to learn that you LOST 5 lbs? :) That's what happened. I am down from 84.9 to 82.7 kilos today. Very nice.

The other numbers aren't changed all that much. Most of the loss is - as expected - water, and a little fat. I wasn't in too much of a calorie deficit yesterday, because of the wine we had, but I ended up at 2,000 calories for the day.

I had 155g of protein, and 30% of my calories came from fat. It was perfect.

...

Today, we're gonna go shopping. We're gonna go find a turkey for our Thanksgiving/Black Friday dinner. We're driving to a big market with a friend, so I'm not sure how much walking we'll get to be doing. WE'll see.

It's almost 11 am, and almost the time where I break my fast. It won't happen today though. I ate until MUCH later than 7 PM last night, and I really want to have my full 16 hour fast period. So I will wait as long as I can before I eat - probably until around 3 PM. Then I will still close my feeding window at 7 PM and be right back on track for tomorrow. I can still enjoy the same amount of calories, but I WILL try to go very low.

The whole point of going high carb and high calorie Friday was to get things going, so the coming week - starting today - will have to be going as low in calories as possible, with optimal protein and fat, and as few carbs as possible. This should nudge down the weight more, I think.

Only one way to find out.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- A FUN day out yesterday!
- NOT being hung over today!
- NOT having to pay the bill from yesterday's dinner! DAMN! It would be about $1,000!
- Wife!
- Coffee.

Have a great day! Life is good!

That food looks wonderful !! I'm sure I'd still be hungry after that though. :-)

The food looked pretty. Interesting too. But all I could think was that I'd hate to be the one who had to wash all those dishes. Glad you enjoyed the experience.

I don't think a single one of us could eat so little every meal and feel satisfied. Bring on some more veggies or something. Lol. Glad you guys had such a great night. Killer weight loss too!

Sounds like a great meal followed by a nice 'whoosh' effect loss after the wine! Great to read your exploits and all the best for the season.

Oh, that sounds like an incredible experience, Keld. You got to eat like the king you are, and still lost 5 lbs!!! Unreal. Glad you had a blast.

Just curious how much I gain tomorrow. LOL. I'm sure this drop won't last. :) Like Draglist said, "whoosh"-effect.

While each course looks small it really looks quite filling when you put it all together and consider a sparkling beverage, glass of wine and cup of coffee with it; I'm drooling here :-)
